BBC's True Lies

Kudos to the authors and the team for co-ordinating brilliantly to create such a superb book. The BBC's hypocrisy and double standards have always been apparent to viewers, and now in this book it has been completely exposed for all to see! We definitely need more books such as this, to even out the narratives. Must-Read!

Product Details


BBC’s True Lies unveils heretofore undisclosed facets and facts about the BBC, prompting us to scrutinise its claim as the ultimate arbiter of authentic information. The book brings to light the cleverly crafted image of BBC’s ‘independence and impartiality’ with a global audience, while subtly becoming a part of the British security and intelligence system, both historically and in modern times, aligning with establishment interests.

The book points out how the BBC, while funded by the people through mandatory licence, state support in forms of grants etc, still manages to avoid the label of ‘state-controlled media’. There also seems to be a common thread in the BBC's reporting which tends to aggravate the faultlines in the developing and under-developed world. This critical look at the BBC is meant for readers all around the world as it deals with matters of global importance. The book aims to empower readers to approach global media outlets with discernment, encouraging a more thoughtful and informed interaction with the information provided by such influential but potentially biased sources.

“I have fought three elections against the BBC and don’t want to fight another against it.”
—Margaret Thatcher
Former UK Prime Minister

“Long before ‘fake news’ had a name, the BBC was a master of fake news, in fact fake news of the most dangerous, the most vicious consequences, casting nations, not just individuals, into direct calamities.”
—Hamid Dabashi
Renowned Author, Professor & Expert on Iranian Studies
